Stacey Abrams officially wins the Democratic primary race for governor

Democrat Stacey Abrams has officially won Georgia’s Democratic primary race for governor, bringing a long-awaited rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp (R), who also won his race on Tuesday.

The former Georgia state legislator officially secured her nomination on Tuesday night:

Abrams has long maintained that she defeated Kemp in the last gubernatorial race, ultimately deeming the system as “unfair”. In a 2019 interview with the New York Timesa reporter presented the failed gubernatorial candidate the following: “I saw that you recently said something like you won your election, but you just didn’t get the job.”

Abram replied with a resounding “Yes”.

“I believe we have reached a point where those who share my values ​​outnumber those who share my opponent’s values. And that didn’t manifest itself because of its structural racism and how it diminished people’s ability to vote,” she said at the time.

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate recently made waves on the campaign trail after calling Peach State “the worst state in the country to live in”.

“I’m tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we’re the worst state in the country to live in,” she said during a speech at the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross, Georgia:

Both Kemp and his former Senator David Perdue (R-GA) believe they are better suited to take on Abrams later this year, although the latter was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, who said a vote for “RINO Brian Kemp in the primary” is “a vote for Stacey Abrams, and it’s a vote for radical Democrats at the polls.”

“If you don’t want a socialist, extremist, racist lunatic like Stacey raising your taxes, indoctrinating your kids, shelling out your police, releasing criminals and destroying your state, you should nominate David Perdue in the Republican primary on May 24. !” he declared earlier this year.

Recent polls show Kemp leading Abrams in an overall election race by an average of 5.2%.
